Benq DW1620 Internal optical disc drive

The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Article code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product code if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
With these drives you can read and record DVDs and/or CDs in all kinds of formats. Please note the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R when buying a DVD burner, often drives can write only to one of those two media types, sometimes to both. When you buy a drive that only supports one type, you will always have to be careful to choose the right writable DVD discs in the shop. Newer DVD drives also support writing to Dual Layer DVDs. This kind of discs have a storage capacity of 8.5 GB instead of the usual 4.7 GB. DVD (re)writers generally can read and write CDs also, but only some CD (re)writers can read DVDs.

Bottom line The BenQ 1620 is fast and reliable and in my system at least doesnt burn any drink coasters. In short, it is most everything that I wanted in a DVD writer. As a bonus it also offers fairly quiet operation, barely audible above the ambient noise of my...
Based on some email requests from our readers, today we will take a look at yet another 16x DVD writer, this time from BenQ. Not to be confused with the DW1610, the new DW1620 offers the same capabilities but adds support for double layer writing. Whi...
Introduction In Taipei a few months ago, we had a glimpse at BenQs entire DVDR lineup for the rest of the year. Anxious to see working samples then, it seems as though lack of media continued to plague BenQ, Pioneer, LiteOn and NEC. 16X media is still...
